PLEASE READ: As the impact of Coronavirus or COVID-19 continues to unfold in our communities, Workforce Solutions of West Central Texas is prioritizing the needs of employers, educators, and partners in the months ahead. In an effort to stay responsive to both businesses and schools, we will not hold the 2020 WE-Connect Summer Externship Program as originally planned. We look forward to serving participants in other ways during this challenging time.
Through this unique professional development opportunity, educators from around West Central Texas work side-by-side with industry peers during a 3-day paid summer Externship experience at participating businesses.
